Another good feature is that annoying font caching requirement has been eliminated in the update, meaning you won't need to wait for the cache to finish before a video starts, finally! "Video output improvements" are present for those on PowerPC Macs with ATI Radeon 7500/9200, NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, or Intel GMA 950.

There are other improvements and fixes in VLC 2.0.2, but the Windows 64-bit package currently has no official ETA. There is an experimental Windows 64-bit VLC installer, but for those who like that "official" stamp placed on their software, you'll have to wait that little bit longer.


You can grab VLC 2.0.2 here.
